Traumatic Brain Injury Attorney Peoria


Traumatic brain injuries are life-altering as they will leave you or your loved one with permanent disability and/or impairment of functions controlled by the brain. 

This translates to a massive change in the physical, psychological, and social life of the victims, plus the inability to continue working and living as usual. 

You will also need a lot of finances as medical care expenses quickly pile up when you have a serious injury, not to mention the lifestyle changes needed to ensure good quality of life.

A traumatic brain injury refers to any injury that impacts the brain caused by an external force, such as an accident or a blow to the head. The severity of these injuries greatly varies with their effects ranging from mild concussions and loss of coordination to coma, brain death, or even wrongful death.

Types of Brain Injuries

There are different types of brain injuries, and these generally fall into 4 categories, namely:

  • Traumatic brain injury: This brain injury is primarily caused by an external force to the head that leads to either a closed head injury primarily caused by blunt force trauma or an open head injury where an object penetrates the skull.
  • Acquired brain injury: This brain injury is caused by internal events such as blood or oxygen loss caused by incidents like drowning, suffocation, or anesthesia errors.
  • Hypoxic brain injury: This brain injury occurs due to a lack of sufficient oxygen to the brain resulting in hypoxia.
  • Anoxic brain injury: This is a severe form of hypoxia that occurs when the brain has to go through a period with low oxygen levels.

Navigating Traumatic Brain Injury Claims

After suffering traumatic brain injuries because of someone else’s negligence, you need to file a claim as fast as possible to protect yourself over the long term. Regardless of the cause of your injuries, be it a road accident, medical malpractice, intentional assault, or fall, you need to file a watertight claim and ensure you get the best possible settlement. This is where you need the expertise of a brain injury lawyer, and in Peoria, IL, LeFante Law Offices is here, so you never have to settle for less.

With our brain injury attorneys by your side, you are guaranteed that a team of specialists will look at your case from all possible angles and ensure all eligible areas of compensation are covered, including:

  • Medical care expenses and related costs like ambulance, trips to the hospital, and special care needs
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

Identifying Liability

In every TMI case, it is critical to establish liability as this is the only way the at-fault party or their insurance company can offer compensation. At LeFante Law Offices, we have spent years working with brain injury victims and can help prove negligence and establish liability so your claim is not thrown out prematurely.

We will use investigators, witnesses, and other experts to gather enough evidence to show the courts that:

  • You or your loved one was owed a duty of care
  • The accused party breached the duty of care
  • The breach of duty led to your injuries
  • You suffered damages

Brain injuries often cause long-term problems for the victims; for most people, this covers their entire lifetime. As a result, you cannot afford to take chances with your traumatic injury claim, as once you settle, there is no chance to do it again. Equally, insurance companies and the attorney representing the accused party do not have your interests at heart; in reality, they want to write you the lowest settlement check possible.
